This place will let you come back for another meal than curry. The owner (english) and his wife (Sri lankan), where really friendly. Just a good place to have a beer at the beach as well.

“Nice calm simple restaurant”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

If you are staying in Unawatuna longer, go to this place to escape the crowded beach and beach restaurants.
The owner sometimes shows movies on a big screen, I've been told, so maybe a fun night out?

For me I enjoyed the pizza's, they were not extraordinary but it was nice western food after days of fried rice and noodles.

It is a outdoor bar sort of trendy club with sofa's so nice to go with friends, but also on your own a place where you should just walk through the alley and look for yourself.

hi thanks for your kind review.
PLEASE NOTE! unfortunently KOKOS is now solely on the beach at unawatuna, once the garden reopens we will let our guests know. we appologise for any inconvience.

you can still enjoy the warm welcome of the kokos family whilst relaxing on our golden beach.

thanks and blessings

“Best Burgers/Pizza/Fish & Chips going”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

The first time i visited this resteaurant was through word of mouth. I walked down this little side path off the main street and entered what seemed like a completely different part of Sri Lanka. The atmosphere was great and the customer service was excellent. The food is amazing to say the least. Burgers of all shapes and sizes with pretty much whatever filling you desire you will get catered for. The pizzas are made with daily made fresh dough on a wood fire... Perfect.
Every time i visit Unawatuna its the first place i go to get a Top quality Meal and some good music to go with the chilled vibe of Garys Resteaurant. I would give it 6 stars if i could

hi thanks for your kind review.
PLEASE NOTE! the garden part of the restaurant is closed for the moment, so our menu now does not include our infamous pizzas.
however we offer a great variety of great freshly prepered food including our burgers, fish n chips, kebabs and our all new Natchos and Tacos in our bar and grill on the golden sands of unawatuna beach.

thanks and blessings

“Very good food”
Reviewed 12 October 2013 via mobile

The food here is brilliant, if your looking for a break from rice and curry and fancy a decent burger then this is the place.

Gary the English owner is really friendly and good to chat to. They also to nachos, jacket potatoes, and cheesy chips for the British!

It's more of a snack bar as in the off season there is very little beach at that end of the beach, but in peak season there is a lot more seating as they gain about an extra 30ft of beach!

hi thanks for your review.

sri lankan food is fantastic but after a few days you need to eat something a bit more familiar! thats why KOKOs is here to help, we only offer western food on our menu, so our guests can be sure they get the very best on offer in unawatuna.

some times there is very little beach out front of our bar, but please dont let that put you off.

thanks and blessings
